Dr. Robert Welton, an associate medical examiner for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, conducted the autopsy on Clark on Sunday in Holyoke and has ruled the death a homicide.
 
Clark's estranged boyfriend, Michael S. Boulais, 32, is expected to be arraigned on a charge of murder on Tuesday in Central Berkshire District Court. 

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A Hinsdale man has been charged with murder in connection with the death of his estranged girlfriend.

 
Michael S. Boulais, 32, was arrested and charged Friday morning with one count of murder in the death of 24-year-old Kassedi Clark.
 
Hinsdale Police received a 911 call at approximately 8:30 on Friday morning reporting a possible shooting at 53 Ashmere Drive, Hinsdale. When officers arrived on the scene, they found Clark's body inside a vehicle on the property. 
 
An autopsy, to determine Clark's cause of death, will be conducted at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Holyoke on Sunday.
 
Boulais is expected to be arraigned on the murder charge Tuesday morning in Central Berkshire District Court. He is being held at the Berkshire County House of Correction without the right to bail pending his arraignment.
 
Investigators believe the shooting was an isolated incident and do not believe others in the area are in any immediate danger.
 
Case workers from the Department of Children and Families were contacted to provide assistance to the children who resided at the residence.
 
Clark attended Taconic High School and was studying to be a nurse, with an interest in becoming a midwife, according to her Facebook profile.
 
The investigation is being conducted by state troopers assigned to the district attorney's office, members of the Hinsdale and Dalton police departments, the Berkshire County sheriff's department, state troopers assigned to the Cheshire barracks, State Police Crime Scene Services and Ballistics Sections and forensic scientists assigned to the State Police Crime Laboratory.
